“Working with Johny Ballen of The Squeaky Bean was fantastic. His vision for the eclectic touches, finer details, and preservation of the older aspects of structures help to bring a refined aesthetic to his spaces. Our collaboration on collecting reclaimed materials, furniture, and lighting created an environment that brought an overdue richness to a vacant corner lot and a neighborhood in need of a living local watering hole.”

-David Schaich

The taco and tequila concept is nothing new. Add in the setting of a mid century gas station, and eclectic mix of found objects, and a successful restaurateur who has an acquired taste for fine mescal, backed with his own tequila label, and you have a great story.
